Why it loves Black Lives Matter, and woke politics in general:
Woke politics has also been useful for firms hiding all kinds of unsavoury practices. Many firms will proclaim allegiance to BLM one day, while lobbying against curbs on forced labour the next, for instance. Indeed, whether you take the Marxist view, that all firms in a capitalist system exploit labour anyway, or the Adam Smith view, that sellers in a marketplace act out of self-interest rather than kindness, it is surely hard to take any company’s proclamations of righteousness too seriously.
This reminds me of how “feminist” men use their wokeism to attempt to insulate themselves from their abuse of women, like when Harvey Weinstein went to war with the NRA to deflect from his predatory behavior toward starlets.
